Domaine Jean Collet
The Collet family has been located in Chablis since 1792 – the date of birth of the first French Republic – and has, through all the generations, consecrated themselves to their vineyard and winemaking. The men and women of this long lineage have passed down their passion fo working the vines as well as their demanding work ethic from generation to generation.Around the middle of the 20th century, the Chablisien vineyards experienced an unprecedented enormous growth. At this time, Jean Collet decided to found the Domaine Collet. He was figured among the pioneers of Chablis who decided to start exporting their wines. In fact, it was in 1959 that Jean boarded an airplane for the first time to fly to the USA to sell his wine.From Jean to Gilles, and now Gilles to Romain the ideas of modernity and tradition have coexisted at Domaine Collet in the hope of seeking out a unique know-how, or savoir-faire to wine-making.
